Maple Walnut Cookies!

This cookie recipe is for Grace. Grace is a supporter of our maple syrup at a local farmer's market,  and asked for a cookie reccomendation that used maple syrup.  I told her this cookie recipe is great to serve as a dessert or can be eaten as a  breakfast cookie which made the recipe even more appealing. There are 8 ingredients in this cookie which makes this a very easy recipe to make and also is great for those who just want a cookie for on the go!  Remember it is full of good ingredients and sweetened with only maple syrup. What could be better?!
